Large Scale Lake Planning
This report sets forth a refined lake protection plan for Silver Lake, which plan includes consideration of the studies and surveys completed by the Silver Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District since the publication of the aforereferenced lake protection plan. This plan represents part of the ongoing commitment of the Silver Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District, and the Town of West Bend, to sound planning with respect to the Lake and forms a logical complement to the earlier study conducted by the Commission in 1997. The current plan was prepared by SEWRPC, in cooperation with the Silver Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District, and incorporates the data and analyses developed in the aforementioned lake protection plan as well as pertinent water quality and other data gathered by the United States Geological survey: the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and private consultants working under contract to the District. This planning project was funded, in part, through a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Lake Management Planning Grant awarded to the Silver Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District under Chapter NR 190 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code.
Identify citizen concerns and lake usage by a questionnaire survey of lake residents. Conduct water chemistry analysis, an aquatic plant survey, groundwater quality analysis and an inventory of sediment type and distribution. Assess lake usage and landusage and develop a lake management plan based on the information obtained in tasks listed above.
